convenient location, centrally located to attractions in and around Cincinnati. Good area to walk to nearby neighborhoods. Handy to get onto highways. Nice outdoor pool, friendly staff. Not fancy but fine.

The room was small and pretty average. Best thing about the room was the giant tv and great channels. The food in the restaurant was good also. The Embassy Suites right down the road was much nicer with a huge free breakfast.

Room was clean and decent, bed was comfortable. Price was a little high in my opinion for the area. Staff was all very nice and helpful. Would stay again. I think they should have provided at least a continental breakfast for the price but Waffle House is right across the street and hotel had what looked to be a nice... More

There's nothing too much wrong with this Holiday Inn, but nothing to get an undemanding guest excited either. We have been staying mostly in Hampton Inns on this road trip and, despite the fact that the Holiday Inn is a full service hotel, it and its staff suffer by comparison in almost every respect. Registration was efficient but brusque and... More

We were in the area for a ball game just over the river in Cincinnati. We found the rates to be much better than on the Cincinnati side of the river. It was a pleasant 20 minute walk over the bridge to the park. The hotel was clean, staff pleasant and well located. As mentioned by other reviewers, the hotel... More

Went for some Reds games, its a perfect location. You can either walk to Great American Ballpark about 20mins or so or take the shuttle which is right in front of Hotel for only $1. The Hotel is a little older but is very clean and the staff are very helpful to all your needs. There are plenty of fast... More

The hotel is dated and needs remodeling, the rooms are on the smaller side. The bathroom was particularly small. Otherwise it was clean. Free coffee and parking, but not free breakfast. It is within walking distance of several quick eat places. Easy access to and from highway.

We recently stayed one night here while in town for a Reds game. The hotel location was a short walk from some bars/restaurants in the Covingtown area, and also a short walk away from the bridge over to the ballpark. If you're not interested in walking, there is a trolley option available for only $1 per person. Its not the... More
